now for the next mod

These are the coilovers I will be buying by Dec1., (waiting to see if they go on sale). Here is my question. Do I need to also install wheel spacers when using these with stock 18" M wheels. Also if anyone has a review on these I would love to hear them.

No one around here install these coilovers on their 740s? I do have a few weeks before I order them. I just want to make sure thet these guys are the way to go before I sink a grand into them.

Only planning on a 1/2" -1" drop in the rear and a 3/4"-1.25" drop on the front. This amount is from the stock Sport hieght. I dont want it slammed. But for the price of replacment struts and fixed springs the coilovers are about the same. My biggest concern is the ride quality. The price quoted was just north of $1000 with the complete install kit (upper mounts).
